Verisimilitude

The more I think about it, the more I'm disturbed by a word meaning "seems like it's probably true".  As a scientist, I don't want to admit that intuition is so closely linked to acceptance as fact.

Yesterday's word was Lagniappe, which doesn't have the origins I would have expected.
